  • Valve seat
  • I think I need to do some work on my valve seats. Long story but I have a 1951 8n with new valves but the seats were lapped. But low compression and not coming up when I do a wet compression either. So my question is, if I choose to use a valve seat grinder tool, should I be concerned about grinding the seats below the block itself. Not saying I would, but not sure how much clearance there is as far as the valve seat and block being "level" with each other. Hope this makes sense. Hoping to do this without having to replace a valve seat. Thanks for all the help. Mt

  • After you lap them and assemble the valves you can check for leaks. Use a couple drops of water and see if it drains thru. The seats can be replaced. If you a skilled grind them you should be okay.
